What was the best/worst fad of the 70's?
During the seventies the nation fell into an economic funk and inflation soared to new levels. In 1972 Richard Nixon pulled troops out of Vietnam. A time of widespread public cynicism of the government followed when President Nixon and the Republicans got caught eavesdropping on Democratic party headquarters in the Watergate scandal. Nixon was impeached and became the first president ever to resign on August 9th 1974. In September of 1972 the Olympics were highlighted by the dominance of American swimmer Mark Spitz and marked by the tragedy of the execution of most of the Israeli Olympic team by terrorists. In 1975, teamster leader Jimmy Hoffa disappeared never to be found again. The seventies marked the beginning of women's movement lead by intellectuals including Gloria Steinem. On July 4th 1976, America celebrated its 200th birthday.The end of the seventies saw the rise and fall disco and the opening of chic clubs like New York's Studio 54 where outrageous sex acts, excessive drug use, and tax evasion ran supreme.
